    ARTIST PACKAGE — PLUS Bilum Bag —
    A bilum is a string bag made by hand in PNG. The bag is made by a process known as looping or knotless netting or by crocheting. Traditionally, the string used was handmade, normally from plant materials. Now, however, many people who can afford to do so make their bilums from store bought yarn and string. Women can be seen with a bilum hanging from their forehead so they can carry greater loads, such as babies or for the vegetables from their gardens. No two are alike! One incentive bag is a small purse, which the young girls like to carry when going into town – quite fashionable. The film team spent intimate moments with the women in Kofure Village learning about the craft and listening to them singing lullaby's to the babies snuggled in a bilum. With the bilum, Michele will provide one of her signed photos of a baby cradled by a bilum.

    ARTIST PACKAGE — PLUS Collectors Tin —

    Caroline carried her art supplies in cigarette tins on her 4 year journey. In addition, a tin was found in the ephemera held by the museum. Upon opening this little treasure, what was discovered was a love letter from Caroline's husband (and short marriage). It tells her of his undying love but that he knows he cannot keep such a free spirit penned up in traditional marriage. We acquired 10 antique Chesterfield cigarette tins and placed a copy of the letter along with some colorful chalks.
